Obituary of Jane Whartman
Jane passed away peacefully on Friday, August 18, 2023, from kidney failure at age 86. She was an extremely gentle lady with an infectious sense of humor. She enjoyed quaint items such as tea pots, antique dishes, and vintage light fixtures. She loved to play Scrabble and cards and was a hard-nosed competitor in all games. She was also an avid reader, golfer, Civil War buff, poet, and writer of entertaining accounts of family history and events. Above all, she valued spending time with her family.
She is survived by Robert, her loving husband of 65 years; sister Joan Bachman; daughters Tracy Whartman and Lynn (Brad) Gulsvig; grandchildren Brieanna (Eric) Adan, Ben (Theresa) Gulsvig, and Beau (Chelsey) Gulsvig; seven great grandchildren; and niece, Lori Bachman.
